Celebrate this Christmas the eco-friendly way.


The Christmas season is a cherished time to celebrate with friends and family. While many people look forward to spending time with their loved ones, Christmas can also be a time when we think of Mother Nature and do what we can to reduce our carbon footprint. Following eco-friendly practices is especially important at this time of year as typical activities such as gift-giving, decorating and entertaining can lead to increased harm to the environment.

Plastic is one of the biggest causes of environmental pollution. Unfortunately, with increased shopping and gift-giving, plastic becomes even more prevalent during this time of year. Avoiding the use of plastic bags and wrappers as much as possible is an important first step in reducing the negative impact of the season. Try to purchase goods that have little or no packaging, and if you must use plastic bags, make sure it’s made from recyclable plastic.

Similarly, avoid giving gifts that are made of plastic. Ensuring that your gifts are sustainable and is not only good for the environment but also help promote environmentally friendly businesses. Try to use a natural tree for one of the most cherished symbols of Christmas, the Christmas tree. This is because artificial trees will not decompose and will eventually end up in garbage dumps, unlike natural trees that are completely biodegradable. An added bonus is that a natural Christmas tree will give a much more authentic feel to your living room. Also do not worry about the trees being cut, since these trees are grown specifically for this and it will repeat it’s growth cycle every year with the minimum impact on the environment.

This is also a time for entertainment, but it is vital that this is done in an eco-friendly manner. Avoid using disposable plates, cups and cutlery which are made of harmful plastic. For the same reason, don’t use plastic straws. Make sure your disposable cutlery is made of paper, or use reusable plastic cups and plates. Normal ceramic plates and glasses are not only more environmentally friendly but also add to the sense of occasion. Food wastage is also common during gatherings and family meals. Reducing wastage is key to preserving our natural resources.
